WHITIANGA WEATHER

Whitianga Police Report for the period 5 January to 12 January 2015

Whitianga Police Report for the period 5 January to 12 January 2015

GENERAL

That time of year again when we need to remind a few people who are lucky enough to still be on holiday that most people are now back at work, so keeping noise levels reasonable and turning stereos off at a reasonable hour will go a long way to keeping the neighbours happy.

We have had another theft from a bag while the owner has been swimming, this time from Cathedral Cove on the 9th. While most of the people sun bathing around your stuff can be trusted, unfortunately it only takes one thief to spoil your day.

Leave valuables at home or lock them in your car out of sight and let us know if you see anyone acting suspiciously around other people's property.       

ARRESTS

12th - 1 x 23yr old local woman for Theft Ex-Shop.

OCCURRENCES

Three domestic incidents attended last week.

On the 10th a drunk ex-partner was removed from an Annette Place address as he was not welcome there, while on the 11th two sisters were arguing at a Cook Drive address with alcohol a major factor.

Both were given sound advice.

Then on the 11th a couple arguing over custody issues at a Grange Road address were advised to read their agreement and stick to it. 

On the 8th a car was damaged outside a Kenwood Drive address when the offender climbed on the vehicle denting the roof and bonnet.

A group of youths banging on the windows of a Cordyline Crescent address and running off on the 10th need to grow up and start thinking about others, while also that night a yellow mountain bike was stolen from a Hannan Road address and a letterbox was damaged at a Springbok Ave address.

We have had another theft from a produce stall at a Hodge Road address on the 11th and again excellent security footage has been obtained to help identify the offender.

A car was unlawfully converted when an ex-partner failed to return a borrowed car as agreed and our enquiries are continuing to locate her. 

TRAFFIC

No drunk drivers were apprehended this week.

A couple of crashes last week with a truck full of molasses rolling on SH25 near Whenuakite being the standout.

Minor injuries resulted.
